K, 1, 2, 3
Title – Turkey Pins

Primary Subject – Art
Secondary Subjects –
Grade Level – K-3
These Turkey Pins are nice to make in the classroom, or as gifts for room volunteers!
You will want to have this as an adult-supervised center.
2 mini squiggly eyes per turkey
mini straw hat
small brown pom pom
pieces of orange, brown, and red pipe cleaners
artificial flowers in autumn colors
The mini hat will be the body. Take an artificial flower and cut it in half (remove the center). Glue this to one side of the outer brim of the hat. Glue the pom pom to the top of the hat for the head. Glue the two eyes and a small piece of orange pipe cleaner for the beak. Glue a red piece the same size as the orange for the waddle. Then cut two slightly larger brown pieces to be used as the feet. Glue a small safety pin to the back of the hat to allow it to be pinned to clothing.
This can be used to assess motor skills as far as manipulating the small pieces, or can be used for following directions.
This idea was given to me by a niece. I do not know where she got the idea from.
